Run-On Sentence Vocabulary Words
Part 1 Dependent clauses have a subject and a verb so they look like a complete sentences but don't express a complete thought. They're called "dependent" because they can't stand on their own. An independent clause expresses a complete thought. Even if a sentence only contains a couple words, we can still understand the idea of the complete thought. For example:
"John waited."
This is a complete sentence because it has a subject (john), a verb (waited) and it expresses a complete thought. Indenpendent clauses can also expand and contain more information. For example: What is a Run On Sentence?
A Run On sentence is...
- A sentence that has one or more independent clauses.
- It’s a sentence that doesn’t have the appropriate punctuation, phrase.
- It has two different subjects connected together, in one sentence. There are two things that complete a run on sentence .
1. It should have proper punctuations.
2. Two different subjects should be separated by a linking word .
For Example:
“Taylor wants to get a new phone she decides to find a job. “
In this sentence, there are two subjects that are stated, but they don’t have the right punctuation, phrase structure and it’s missing a word that links to both subjects in the appropriate way.
The sentence should be like this,
“Taylor wants to get a new phone, so she decides to find a job. “
In this sentence a comma has been added to separate the two subjects and the word (so) is the linking word of the run on sentence. When we identify run on sentences, we should ask ourselves these questions.
1. Is there more than one subject?
2. Is there more than one verb?
3. Is there more than one independent clause?
4. Are each subject connected with a comma and a linking word or by a semi-colon?

If any of these questions are answered with a yes, then that means that we have a Run-On Sentence. Fastidious: 1. A very attentive to and concerned about accuracy and detail.

A sentence fragment is a incomplete sentence. Some fragments are incomplete because they lack either a subject, a verb or both. A lot of sentence fragments that people have trouble with are the dependent clauses. Vocabulary Words
